Welcome to this installment of "New Translation Tuesday."
At a conference I attended recently, a woman, who had been a diocesan director of Christian initiation, but now works in another field, asked me a question. She prefaced the question by telling me how disappointed she was with the entire process that led up to our new translation of the Missal, especially with the last-minute changes that were made to texts that our bishops had spent years discussing and honing.
She looked me squarely in the eyes and said, "Jerry, what am I supposed to do? I just don't feel inspired at Mass any more and I am afraid that I might drift away."
I had my own response to her, which I will share on Thursday. What would your pastoral and charitable response be?
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
